Liposuction for men has only grown in popularity over the last several years. Male liposuction has the ability to help healthy men address areas of their body that have stopped responding the way they would like to diet and exercise. This happens to all men once they reach their 30s or 40s. It’s just a natural part of the aging process, but if you’re not happy with the shape that your body has taken over the last few years, lipo is a very effective way to deal with the problem.
Liposuction for men is most commonly targeted at the neck, the chest, the abdomen, and the upper hips or “love handles.” As we age, fat tends to deposit in these areas and becomes less responsive to proper diet and exercise. The great thing about liposuction today is that it can be completely customized to suit your particular body type. When you come into the office, we can discuss your specific goals and create a treatment plan that suits your needs, whether that means targeting one specific area or trimming down several areas to create an overall more chiseled physique.
Male Lipo Results that Last for Years
One of the great things about male liposuction is that the results last for years and are only improved with exercise. It is possible to regain weight in areas where you have received lipo, but fat will return to these areas much more slowly following the procedure. Plus, men’s skin tends to retain its elasticity a lot longer than women’s skin, which helps the procedure be even more effective. (If your skin is loose due to rapid weight loss or genetics, your liposuction procedure can be accompanied by a tummy tuck to help firm up the affected area.)
Another reason that male liposuction has increased in popularity over recent years is that highly trained plastic surgeons can actually use lipo to create a more chiseled and muscular look. This technique is referred to as VASER liposuction, and it utilizes ultrasound technology to enhance and define muscles that are currently obscured by fat.
